  1. Woz looked and acted like a complete asshole privileged shithead. And he probably is- glorified by being simply in the right place at the right time, not unlike many other residents of fame and fortune. But he badly needs to be bitch-slapped, and probably always has.

    Like Colbert wondered- ‘did you really help invent the personal computer…?’ in total disbelief after seeing how this turd acted in front of him.

  2. That was strange and awkward. The metal business card? Not at all funny. I’ve always liked Wozniak but flaunting sharp objects on a plane doesn’t even come close to the orbit of planet humor. He should stick to teaching kids about science, writing books and Segway polo. Maybe even another Us Festival but not this.

  3. I admire Woz tremendously for his contribution to society, but he is a raving lunatic. His joke about taking his own steak knife on the plane as a gag was disgusting, and the sign that he is totally out of touch with reality. How stupid do you have to be to make a joke like that in the times we are living. The audience was just as confused as Steven. He needs to never be qouted by compter magazines ever again. I honestly think there is some mental illness there.

    Personlly, I think Steve jobs should sue Woz for using the “i” in front of Woz as the title of his book. Woz has nothing to do with the iMac or iTunes and etc. Woz has no connection to Apple, as it exists today and the title could confuse people who don’t know that this lunatic has nothing to do with Apple these days. It’s a bad thing for Apple to have him running around town talking about Apple Computer or mentioning Apple Computer.

  4. Are you serious? Woz beat Colbert at his own game. Ever watched the show when the interviewee takes it seriously. Colbert walks all over the guy when that happens.

    The Colbert report is a comedy not a real chat show.

  5. Holy fucking shit, Wade. Do you really think that Woz was “in the right place at the right time” to invent the first personal computer? Uh, I hate to tell you, but back then it wasn’t as simple as buying all the parts at Radio Shack and following a book to do it. It’s not like he was standing there and the computer appeared and he said “Look what I invented.” It’s not that simple, dumbass.
